  • Over this last weekend, MGMT debuted a new song to their Penn State audience. Thanks to one attentive fan, you too can be entranced by their performance of “Mystery Disease”. On May 15 the psychadelic rockers will make their way to Seattle. You can see them perform at Showbox SoDo (tickets are available HERE). [CoS]

  • Wampire are coming up on the release of their debut album, Curiosity – out via Polyvinyl on May 14 – so they’re giving fans a taste a little bit early. The Portland duo previously previewed two tracks,”The Hearst” and “Spirit Forrest”, but this new one called “Trains” has a laid back aspect that makes it perfect for a lazy day. You can download it for free below. [Stereogum]

  • It’s been a solid decade since Fleetwood Mac has reunited to record new music, and it feels like they never skipped a beat. Today they’ve unveiled a four song EP, which is brilliantly entitled Extended Play. Here’s a video of them performing “Without You” a previously unreleased love song Buckingham Nicks wrote together about 40 years ago. Stevie Nicks takes a bit of a back seat in most of the tracks, but her unmistakeable voice still steals the attention. [CoS]

  • Canadian shoegazers, No Joy, dropped an extremely interesting music video for the song “Hare Tarot Lies”. The video literally takes you on a trip through a colorful spectacle after a group of girls binge on booze and an assortment of drugs. They take you on one hell of a three and a half minute ride.

    • Now here’s a little something completely different from our usual style, but it’s still pretty fantastic. This track is from the upcoming Great Gatsby film. Scottish songbird Emeli Sandé and Brian Ferry Orchestra have turned Beyonce‘s “Crazy in Love” into a snappy, 1920s number fit for flappers. I find it amazing that a spunky jazz rendition lives up to Queen B’s original. [CoS]
